Title: game character(s) that you miss from previous-gen games
Posted: July 02, 2010 (11:04 PM)
one character that i truly fell in love with was Raziel from Soul Reaver...his story was amazing, the voice talent behind him was awesome and he had some bad ass powers....but the Legacy of Kain series never saw the light of day after Defiance on the PS2......and i wonder why....this is one series that should make a comeback.....besides Earthworm Jim....watever happened to that guy or worm or worm-guy?????

Definitely Earthworm Jim is missed, though what happened to him is that he had a god-awful 3D adventure. One of those characters who got caught up in the 3D craze without good reason. EJ did just fine in the 2D side scrolling world.

A similar thing happened to Donkey Kong, but he's got Nintendo as a general manager and promoter so he's fine.

Aside from Jim I'm not sure there's anyone I miss enough to bring back or, if I do, I recognize that I miss them in a specific context and time and that context and time has passed. Maybe Max Payne. I'm looking forward to seeing him make a come back, even if it proves to be brief.

Characters that should just be allowed to die, on the other hand, include Sonic and all his friends, and Lara Croft.

nooooooooooo......cmon not Lara Croft!!!!!!she is THE only heroine that has survived and is on the 3rd generation of consoles if u take PSOne as the first generation of consoles.....ok so u have Jill Valentine and Claire Redfield also from the PSOne era but Jill's and Claire's appearances has been few and far between.....i think the industry needs a heroine that has stood the test of time and that heroine is Lara Croft......

Donkey Kong is coming back and yeah i wish EJ would make a comeback too.....

Samus Aran is far older than Lara Croft and has made much more careful appearances. She's also appeared on more consoles than Lara Croft.

i dont know...the Metroid series is kinda Nintendo exclusive so makes the heroine also kinda exclusive but Lara on the other hand has no such exclusivity about her.....

Hasn't Samus only been on four consoles? Lara has been on at least six.

Plus, she's been in movies.

She's been on five consoles if you count her Smash Bros. appearance on N64. Plus, she's been on Game Boy, GBA and DS.

I'd like to see Nemesis from Resident Evil come back in a starring role, or some similar enemy that chases you for the entire game.
